About Anne Mae Bancock, adopted daughter

Anne Mae Bancock,8y, adopted daughter of John Rydelski and Helen Rydelski (born Junkrowski)

Note: The search for her biological parents, husband and descendants is welcome.

Anne Mae Bancock (b. 1932, Chicago, Il, US), seems was an orphan (?), during 1932-1940, or maybe ilegimate child from a ilegimate marriage, of her biological parents unknown Bancock's name. Seems, a her biological parents, was leave it and gave in the Chicago City War school (Dominican Sisters) ( , Dominican Sister Sister, map) in Chicago, from where and was adopted by John Rydelski and his wife Helen Martha Junkrowski.

Possible facts about of her biological parents:

In that time, during 1932-1940, possible a her biological parents: father (unknown) was a soldier in US Army (?) in WW I and WW II, and her mother (unknown) was a worker in the restaurant or medicine sister in the local hospital (?) in Chicago.

Based on the year when she was born at 1932, Anne Mae Rydelski (b. Bancock) maybe still alive today and live in Chicago, married and have a family, or migrated in another place (county), town in USA, but I do not know a name of her husband and names of her childrens. A obituary and information of her death with surname Bancock or Rydelski, in the US newspapers not found. Maybe, she changed a surname Bancock (?) or she took a surname Rydelski from a her adopted parents. Today at 2021, Anne Mae should have 89y, maybe she was passed away in meantime ?

Today in 2023, Anne have 91y old, so fact that she was possible passed away in meantime, seems logical but for confirmation need to find a proof.

If someone, has a relation to her or her family, or might someone is a her descendants, pls. inform and feel free connect to this part of tree.

Hi! This is Michelle with DNA Detectives. Is there any know children of Anne available to DNA test?

She was your 1C3R? Do you have any closer matches you can focus on?
Unfortunately there is no way of knowing her biological family without using DNA to solve it. What company have you tested with?

I: I'm not tested DNA for her, I using and doing research through records. About closer matches, did you mean a close relative family memebrs to her? Here is a record

This happens often in family research. Adoptees or those with unknown parentage. Testing sites like Ancestry DNA sometimes can solve these mysteries.
